Best available players after first round

It was all about offense in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday.

When the Jacksonville Jaguars are back on the clock with the 33rd pick to kick off the second round Friday night, the run on defense could begin.

Jacksonville selected Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence first and spent the 25th pick on his college teammate, running back Travis Etienne.

The first seven picks in the draft were offensive players for the first time in the modern draft era — the 1999 draft came close; cornerback Champ Bailey was the No. 7 pick — and only 14 defensive players were selected among the top 32 Thursday.
